Improving Cardiac Device Care With Telemedicine

Apr 17, 2020

Telemedicine has been gaining popularity, and it’s easy to see why. Remote medicine can save providers both time and also money. Plus, patients love the ease and privacy of digital visits. Telemedicine is generally used for primary care visits. However, the industry is expanding. Today, cardiologists are more than ever integrating remote care. Below are just some of the ways that tech is improving the specialty care experience.

Easy Access to Key Information

Cardiologists need to access lots of documents and information for their patients. These include reports from primary care providers, other specialists, lab results, implanted devices, procedures and much more. Many cardiologists also need pacemaker, defibrillator and loop recorder home monitoring results from their patients. Digital platforms allow providers to access all of these documents and information in one place. These digital records also make it easy to securely save and send information to Electronic Health Record Systems and other platforms. If you are working with numerous documents and information for a single patient, then the time saved sorting files and information adds up!

Track Changes in Real-Time

Tools like pacemakers need constant monitoring to keep a patient safe and provide real-time information to physicians. But older monitoring tools and proprietary manufacturer technologies aren’t always user-friendly and efficient. Newer platforms, like that offered by Octagos Health, make it easy to view all pacemaker data in one place in a simple, easy to read report that has already been reviewed by a device expert. This means that doctors, nurses, and other staff members can easily see a patient’s cardiac status and made clinical decisions based on actionable data. This way, it’s easy to track the patient’s health in real-time and ensure they are getting the highest quality of specialty care possible.

Cardiology Care, Wherever You Are

Patients and providers love the convenience of telemedicine. Patients often travel to see cardiologists, which can be time-consuming, stressful and potentially dangerous in today’s environment. Providers might also split their time between different clinics or hospitals. Telehealth allows doctors and patients to connect quickly, securely and easily. With a few simple clicks, you can view information from anywhere in the world. This can improve the relationship between a doctor and a patient.
